So I've read about dumps, landfills, convenience centers, etc. (whatever you want to call them) that are stinking up the place with, possibly toxic, odors. Especially in Kingsport and Bristol. With there being additional contributors such as a chemical plant in Kingsport.

How is Johnson City's air quality affected by these? I'm concerned about the stink, but more so the health hazards.

Are there any other environmental dangers to be aware of in the area? I know there's a Nuclear Fuel Services in Erwin that discharges into a nearby river.

I live in Bristol, and rarely smell the landfill, though it is a big issue right now. Kingsport has three primary odors - the worst is Domtar (paper mill), which has been idled for over a year now. The other two are Eastman Chemical Company and a wastewater treatment plant near Eastman. I wouldn't want to live in most of the city of Kingsport, but the odor is only a small part of that.

Johnson City isn't going to be impacted by smells or bad air quality in the other two cities.
